Well, I decided to try to make my own pemmican. I had some venison and rabbit meat in the freezer. I also got some buffalo tallow when I picked half our cow from the processor. I then got some strawberries and blueberries. I followed some details instructions pretty closely. As the instructions said, I was careful not to season my pemmican too much.
I really do not have much money wrapped up in this project as the meat was from hunting and the tallow was free. I did spend a few bucks on the berries. The investment I have in this is time. The end result tastes so bad it is unpalatable. As much as I want to, I just cannot eat it. What I am wondering is if I could heat the dried pemmican back up and season the heck out of it to make it tasty? Also, how do you clean rendered lard off pans, etc.? It dries like wax and is very difficult to clean off.
